was crossed. at thisote without point having all the facts there me, that we know syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. inknow that there are those the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons, if necessary, to protect themselves. of anyeply skeptical claim that, in fact, it was the opposition that use chemical weapons. everybody who knows the facts of chemical weapons stockpile inside syria as well as the syrian government could abilities, i think would question those claims. i know they are floating out there right now. point is, once we establish the facts, i have made clear the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. host: in the newspaper this morning, and israel -- this is from a cnn interview -- host: i want to get your reaction and your thoughts on u.s. policy towards syria. the numbers are on your screen -- host: you can also post a comment on facebook or send a twitter. you can send an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. the washington post, obama warns syria on chemical arms -- host: the british-based syrian obse
's consider working together on areas to change how the government does business and give more value to the taxpayer while we get spending under control. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from georgia, mr. arrow, for five minutes. mr. barrow: mr. speaker, i rise today to urge my colleagues to join me in support of house joint resolution 33 which would reshape the way washington operates. because congress has failed to do its job to find the spending cuts we need to replace the sequester, folks all across this country, including folks in my district in georgia, will pay the price. unfortunately in washington there are rules that prevent members of congress from being penalized for not doing their jobs. the constitution doesn't protect the folks at home so why should it protect the pay of members of congress? the 27th amendment of the constitution was written to prevent members of congress from giving themselves pay increases, but lately it's been used as a shield to prevent a congressional pay cut. my proposal, house joint resolutio
, is he up to suing the very government ta bailed his firm out, if you wondered, what about bob? tonight is your chance to hear from bob. on that suit and whether he is in. man many argue is at center of it or not, robert ben mo shea coming up. before that. forget about digging out. on this spending thing washington is digging in. welcome i'm neil cavuto it is one thing for nancy pelosi to say we don't have a spending problem for the president to say there is really no great urgency to balancing the budget or harry reid saying there is no rush too deal with entitlements this year. but for house democrat to double down on spending stupid by pushing more stupid spending, well, you got to wonder. but this is true, they want more stimulus about $200 million more, who can blame them, clearly none of their leaders are trying to stop them or remotely discourage them. and members of pear are not block -- of their party are not exactly blocking them. i don't think their intention was to encourage this. they run for a immediate nicotine spending rush any time they can get it, they d got it,n them
of a managed business or a managed government. i guess that would be saying that it's not a managed government. now, when we took up the budget in committee last week, i offered an amendment to strike the language that provided for the fast-track tax increase process. my amendment was meant to ensure that the tax reform would be conducted in a bipartisan manner to generate a more efficient, fairer and simpler tax code and spur economic growth rather than raise revenue through legislation that can be passed with a simple majority here in the senate. a simple majority vote would ensure that the minority party's views would receive little, if any, consideration. we'd have no input. debate time and the number of amendments that could be offered to improve the legislation would also be limited. we need to have an open process where all members can have their voices heard. we simply need to stop deal making and start legislating. we've had this system around here for awhile where we work from contribed crises that hav have -- contribed crises that have very specific dates in which the sky falls and
on the pump. we also realize between the state and federal government a lot of us are paying 40-plus cents a gallon to build the road that we're wearing out with the gas we put in. that's a user's fee. when i came here and break this down and asked the question, of tax/user rth of gas fee, 18.3 cents a gallon, $1 of that, how much of that actually goes into roads and bridges? and i'll tell you it adds up like this -- then we reduce it a little bit on this number. three cents out of that dollar went for trails for bike trails, snowmobile trails and that sort of thing. 3%. there was a one time $16 million in one of our appropriation bills to do -- to clean graffiti off of the walls, retaining walls in new jersey. and i thought, can't they get their prisoners out there with a wire brush to do that? and 28% going for environmental arciological -- interest, looking for arrowheads and endangered species. can't somebody pay for that rather than the people driving on the roads? when you add davis-bacon to that, another 20%, 22%, so you have 3% for trails, you have 28% for our achepologicl and env
do hussein was removed, for sure. at the government level, the strategic agreement is still in place, but it would not be wrong to say that the government of see at the moment does not the american presence or influence as an integral part of its political calculation. it was a few years ago when political decisions were taken. they always factored in what the americans fought and that was certainly true. you probably remember when your the ambassador to baghdad. i do not think that is the situation now. i would even ventured to say that there is more wait for what the iranian regime things about political decisions in iraq, whether it is forming a cabinet any other major political decision. thathat does not mean americans have lost all possible influence. i think americans still have a considerable amount of soft power. i think they should use it not only with the government, and they are actually using it, to be fair, in support of civil society. i think in supporting the segment of population who are secular in their outlook, who believe that the separation of religion from the st
to what we are facing. so this budget grows government. let's not make any excuses. it grows government by increasing spending. and it grows government by a massive increase in taxes. just after we've had one a few months ago. and not counting the massive increase in taxes that's going to occur beginning in 2014 with the implementation of obamacare. when we add that up, when we look at the cost of that, we face dire circumstances. and you would think that the budget being offered to us would not increase debt by 42%, but would address the real problem. now, i know there's been a dispute about how much this budget revenue, taxes are increased. some say $1.5 trillion. those that have presented the budget simply say, oh, no, it's only $1 trillion. whether it's $1.5 trillion or only $1 trillion -- only a trillion, as if only $1 trillion in new taxes on the american people after they just got hit with more than .5 trillion a few months ago and probably hit with another $1 trillion in less than eight months as obamacare kicks in, it just defies credibility. and i think the investment communit
investments for the future of our nation and its citizens. americans are tired of watching their government lurch from one crisis to the next. the congressional black caucus offers a sincere credible path towards a long-term solution which creates jobs, expands the middle class, honors our commitment to seniors by preserving medicare and protecting medicaid and addresses our budgetary deficits and debt responsibly. these goals are achievable. but be clear, the ryan budget will not get us there. it is not the path to the nation's collective prosperity. it does not move us forward. democrats and members of the congressional black caucus propose that we move america forward. i thank you for the opportunity to address these important issues. and i yield back. mr. horsford: thank you, congresswoman beatty. we appreciate your leadership and hard work. can i confirm on our remaining time please? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman has 11 minutes remaining. mr. horsford: for the remaining time, i would like to turn to two of our members on the budget committee, people who have heard firsthand ab
and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is everybody else talked about let's just stick it to the rich. let's raise taxes trillions of dollars. let's go and stick it to special interests like people who he provide gasoline at the pump. to raise taxes on oil companies. ladies and gentlemen, every time you raise taxes, you raise prices. and every time you race -- raise prices the consumer has to pay more for it. these are the ideas that make america less able to be
do not know of a family, i do not know of other units of government that as they're trying to wrestle with this question confine themselves to only looking at one side of the balance sheet. but that's what the house budget does. you know, i was thinking about this approach and this question about deficits not long ago, and it struck me that when i look at myself in a mirror, madam president, i always wish that i was thinner. i always wish i was thinner. but i've never once looked in a mirror and wished i was weaker. an all-cuts approach is like looking in a mirror and wishing your weaker because an all-cuts approach placks yo makes you wen education, weaker in defense, by laying people off in jobs, it makes you weaker because your unemployment rate is higher. it is like looking in the mirror and wishing your weaker. we have to be stronger. can we make cuts? sure we can and we have and we'll make more. but we ought to be focused on being stronger, about growing the economy and growing jobs. and that's why the approach that the senate takes is the right approach. because by utilizing re
for the united states government for fiscal year 2014, and so forth. mr. reid: mr. president, until 11:00, there is going to be conversation here on the senate floor. at 11:00, there will be six roll call votes. offices, senators should understand, the first vote will be 15 minutes, after that, ten minutes. as we said yesterday, we enforced it yesterday, when the time's up, we're closing it. if the republicans aren't here, too bad, if democrats aren't here, too bad. we're going to have a lot of votes today. so make sure everyone's here. understand if you're not, you will -- the clerks have been asked to turn the vote in. after the votes, we complete the six roll call votes starting at 11:00. there will be two hours of debate remaining on the resolution. therefore, unless something untoward happens, the vote-a-rama is expected to begin around 3:00 p.m. this afternoon. we hope everyone would be -- would understand that we have had about 400 amendments filed, 400. we're not going to do 400 amendments. the average that we have on these vote-a-ramas is between 25 and 35. and so i would -- e
even passed, the senate democrats' proposal leaves more debt and government that never stops growing. after four years, the democrats are unable to identify any real reforms, no tax reform and no entitlement reform and it's not a serious proposal. i stand again in support of the house budget because it's responsible, it's real, it balances in 10 years and it's the last thing from political. and i yield back. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from maryland. van vanch you know -- mr. van hollen: you know what's wrong, mr. chairman? it's to pretend to the american people that you can have it all ways. what's wrong is to pretend that you have a budget that's imbalance in 10 years and pretend that you're getting rid all of the affordable care act, getting rid of obamacare. what's wrong is demagogging savings in medicare which we achieved by ending payments to private companies. by demagogging that and using it to balance your budget and say you know what? we didn't use it to balance our budget. that's what people don't like. people trying to have
the federal government should we in the rowboat and business. there should be a national university and washington. he proposed a national astronomical observatory. a white house of the sky. for this, he was ridiculed by the jeffersonian small government crowd. it did nothing to enhance his popularity at the time. it may have contributed to his defeat for reelection. 100 years later, it looks prophetic. >> hi, jennifer. >> i am enjoying this series, i watch every week. >> thank you. >> my question is, and it may have been shown during the program, i am sorry if i have not noticed, but the portraits you have been showing of the two of them, louisa catherine and john quincy adams, was there a big age difference between them? >> thank you for asking. but explain how they met and with the age difference was. >> there is an eight year age difference. john quincy was born in 1767, louisa in 1775. they meet in london. if the resident minister in the netherlands. he is sent from there to london to exchange the ratification for the jay treaty. by the times he gets to london, the business is
with the israeli government? >> you know, i think as much as anything, he's trying to slightly reset them with the general israeli public. one realizes that netanyahu knows what the deal is. they've met ten times? that's far more than he's met with putin, far more than the leaders with china and ironically more than some particular congressional leaders. but reputations and images, as you know, good and bad, are hard to lose. and here's a situation in which the image among both conservatives in this country and among the israeli public fly in the face of what are the facts. never in history on many levels, intelligence sharing, military aid, security information being shared has a relationship been any stronger than it is today and a little bit of news if you're listening to that press conference was that this significant military aid package that we have with israel that we give israel, looks like it's going to be extended by another ten years as of the year 2017. now, that doesn't sound like mortal enemies at work. and when you look at what played out today and it wasn't just the joking
taxes taken out of the pockets of hardworking american families, more government spending which adds to the trillions of dollars in debt that will be handed down to the next generation. our friends on the other side of the aisle talk about a balanced approach, but they refuse to even balance their own budget. our vision calls for a stop to washington's failed policies and reckless spending. it says american families and small businesses understand you can't spend more than you take in. you need to balance your budget, and it's time for washington to do the same. this vision seeks to protect the things that we value most, to keep the promises we made to our seniors, to our veterans. i'm the son of a u.s. marine. while at the same time allowing us to leave a better future for our kids and our grandkids, that's the vision i want to work toward and that's why i'm proud to support the house budget committee's proposal which we'll be voting on later this week. this isn't about passing a budget for one year, just one time. this is about creating lasting solutions that help grow our economy
. >> lawmakers in the house and senate approved legislation to fund the government through the end of september. that avoids the risk of a partial federal shutdown. in the process, they are on spring break for a couple weeks. what's your take on this? >> my take is the whole financial dysfunction of our congress is mind blow iing. you look at this week. let's say frederick, maryland, where there's air traffic control that will be shut. a tower that was built by the stimulus money. so stimulus money went into this tower. the government saying it's a priority. and the the government because of its dysfunction saying we have to shut is down. that's a perfect representation, i think, of how washington is not doing its job. we can't even pass a budget. it can't even run the books. there's no strategy. when you look at some of the spending cuts, you see a lack of a strategy in american finances. >> complaining about this for months. when i say fedex, you probably think of the guys coming to deliver a package. fedex as a gauge of the global economy. fedex posted its third drop in earnings and raised r
have medication that not only can prevent you from this, that the federal government considers antiviral treatment. so this is being able to change this. it didn't take away the eligibility category, but it allows states not be penalized for it in 26 states, you are not eligible at all states are still making. here is the map where they are. this is part of things that have been moved. as you can see, 27 had expressed support. seven of them are still weighing options and the rest of them are opposed. what does this mean for people with hiv? perhaps on the good news side, about% of people live in those states that have expressed theirs. 29% live in states with programs. but florida, for example, the florida legislature is not in support. 11% of people with hiv live in florida. as you can see, and i will make this clear, all of those states on the bottom, that as a challenge. even if all states were to expand medicaid, we know that insurance covered it alone does not equal access to care. it is the nation's safety net for people with hiv. the resources and gaps in care, we need t
. there are issues relating to the loss of the proprietary information, if they share it with the federal government. we are working through those but if we are to be successful in this realm, we have to develop mechanisms of channeling information between the thought -- between the private sector and federal enclave to participate and the bedside attacks and identify those responsible for those attacks and to make certain they are deterred from the additional attacks. >> thank you. it seems it is a question what can be done now and if this are you really from a good relationship with the private sector? thank you bear much. >> i have heard this is a growing concern about gangs in the u.s. military. does the dod participate in the national gang intelligence center? >> i would have to check to the the personnel assigned. i do know that we were work -- we work cooperatively with the military to address things that may be on the feet and also in the military. particularly in cases where there is indication the gang activity is not mullah gated to just the community -- is not relegated just to the commu
a high public opinion approval rating in israel will make the prime minister and the israely government more carol abo-- mor about standing up to him. >> i want to continue this idea that they will not be able to discuss anything. am i dreaming, aren't they going to talk about the iran threat and syria and the massive problems there and egypt. the region in some sense is unraveling, dan, president obama knows that. prime minister netanyahu knows that. cou so, can they get manage out of this? >> there's a lot to talk b but a lot of it is relationship repair. the first term the president, to borrow his phrase, he pursued a strategy in the middle east in which he wanted distance. he said that his u.s. relationship was perceived to close to the prime minister of israel. and so they needed to create space. here he is four years later, nothing to show for it, there's trust issues between the president and the palestinian leaders, so he is trying something different. coming to israel. bear hugging them and sending a message that they are close. as it relates to specifics, absolutely they will
should be fine. >> the concern is among americans that if a government can go in and take money out of your bank account, that that could end up happening here some day. >> in some ways, heather, you could argue it's already happening here. we don't use the word tax. we don't use the word levy here. >> we don't use the word compensation. maybe we should. >> not getting anything and your costs rupp. low interest rates and inflation. >> keep an eye on this. thank you so much. vera givens great having you. a teenager hiding from burglars inside her own home not able to speak while she calls for help. listen to. this you can tell me you but not open the door? >> we will tell you how this lady saved herself and her family. a mother is furious after discovering her son is learning propaganda about the 9/11 terror attacks. wait until you hear hot teacher is blaming. plus, first on this day in history back in 1986, hearts these dreams. it hit number one on the single.

threat that the u.s. government could come after our private bank deposits? yes, i do. they may not confiscate it as cyprus tried to do however there are plenty of ways to get at it. taxes, you're forced to invest in government securities and under the guise of the financial systems, yes, it's a valid concern and the bank defenders will not acknowledge it u and we've got the dow up 39, 40 points at the moment, a shrug from the stock market at the moment. >> yes, it is. stuart: you think this has no impact on the stock market, more on gold and banking stocks, you think? >> i think so, again, what it does, it calls into question the integrity of the financial community and that's what central bankers and legislators fear most. it's not the markets themselves, it's fear of the market and fear of stability because that is what drives confidence and one thing that bernanke can't afford to lose right now. stuart: here is what i think might happen. a no vote, the russians step in, europe says we can't have russia, and they step in. >> i think a power play and progression of events, but
this will be perceived and that's something that our executives, and whether they're in the regular federal government or the postal service, has to take note of. that the public is watching and that they are turned off by seeing waste of taxpayer dollars or in this case, sosh service dollars. >> attendees see it another way. >> relationships and networking very important. if they just stand in their office in washington they wouldn't get the feel of what the mailers want and need in the industry because the industry's changing. technology is changing and the postal service is changing with it. >> reporter: again, the u.s. postal service spending more than 2 million dollars on exhibit space and travel expenses. that may not sound like a lot, but as one government watch dog group told me, the way you end up 16 billion dollars in debt you don't worry about a 2 million dollar expenditure. over time, harris, it all adds up. >> harris: indeed it does. thank you. and republican lawmakers stepping up calls to hear from the the survivors of the benghazi terror attacks, six months after that assault there are
ever in washington's story -- this is a big story here. we have a government agency that actually wants to cut its budget. it wants to -- >> neil: bingo. wants to downsize. >> congress won't let them. never seen this before. congress is saying you can't touch your budget. it would be one thing if the postal service were earning profit and they had extra money but we're talking bat government agency, because of the decline in mail volume, losing in the neighborhood of 10 to $12 billion a year. this his the first baby step. >> neil: why was this rejected in part of a bigger thing. it wasn't as if they were just fighting this. do they want a more aggressive approach or were they saying, we about to start from scratch? >> first of all, that's the big problem. you have 535 bosses at the postal service trying to run this thing. and the postal -- postmaster general, good caw, cost cutter, wants to make this work. everytime he has tried to cut spending at the postal service, congress has blocked him. another example. we have literally scores and scores of old post offices in towns where you don
for the israeli government, but for the israeli people. >> it is a big deal, and a celebration of the relationship. given everything that's happening in the middle east and threats and challenges that we face on all these fronts now that kind of message that the united states is together with israel and palestinian people working together through these challenges and seizing those opportunities of the future is a message that i think especially younger generation, and to give a speech to the israeli youth and palestinian youth is a big deal. michael: he reiterated the necessary peace negotiations between israel and palestinian. obama: negotiations will be necessary, but there's a little secret about where must lead, two states for two peoples. palestinians must recognize that israel will be a jewish state and that israelis have the right to insist upon it for that you are security. israelis must recognize that continued settlement activity is counter productive to the cause of peace and that an independent palestine must be viable with real borders that have to be drawn.

president, to keep this government open. now, they say they want to keep the government open. they don't want a shutdown. so why not get that vote done with? senator mikulski has led in a beautiful way with senator shelby -- a very bipartisan fashion. let's vote on that bill, keep the government open, as senator mikulski said, "show the country we can work together," and get to the one thing the republicans have been saying, not for months but for years, that the democrats have not done a budget. now, the truth is, instead of doing a budget, we did the budget control act. so of course we distinguis did . as a matter of fact, the budget control act was actually, in many ways, more specific than a budget. but set that aside, they went out on the campaign trail, they attacked democrats, "where's your budget? where's your budget?" well, guess what? under the able leadership of my friend from washington, senator murray, there is a budget, and it is well-done. and it has strong deficit reduction and strong investments. it's balanced in a way that the ryan plan is not. it saves medicare where
's a vision of the country where the government is indifferent to the suffering of many while only paying attention to the demands of a few. then there is the other plan that is before us, the democratic plan. with a balanced set of priorities, a better vision for the future, found in the budget offered by house budget committee ranking member chris van hollen. it takes a balanced approach with targeted spending and new revenues. it would cut waste, add jobs and spur economic growth of the economy. it would reduce the deficit by an additional $1.8 trillion without jeopardizing the recovery or harming the middle class. it includes $1.2 trillion in new revenue obtained not by tax increases but by closing loopholes and eliminating wasteful spending that benefits the wealthiest americans and the largest corporations. it eliminates $4 billion in annual tax breaks to the oil and gas industry, an industry that is making profits. they don't need a tax break. in fact, they're making enormous profits. so, why does the ryan budget give them a government subsidy? the democratic plan invests in infras
for the united states government for fiscal year 2014, and so forth. mr. reid: mr. president? the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: as we just heard, the senate has resumed consideration of the budget debate. s. res. 8, the budget resolution. we'll continue debate during today's session. senators will be notified when votes are scheduled, of course. now, mr. president, the budget has 34 hours left and then following that we're going to have some votes. it's up to the two leaders, the managers of this bill, whether they have votes before the 34 hours expire. now, mr. president, the these are two experienced senators and they can handle this -- they both know how to handle this budget, but it would seem to me that we should move as quickly as we could to debating these issues. i hope senators come and offer their opinions as to the budget that chairman murray has brought to the senate floor. maybe some people want to talk about what passed the house yesterday, the ryan republican budget. but everyone should understand that this time will run out at the latest tomorrow at 7:00

brotherhood government in control and we misread the arab spring and the muslim brotherhood said they wouldn't run someone for president and they did. we've seen hamas stronger as well as hezbollah, islamic jihad. and we've seen incredibly unstable situation in syria. when i was there on a congressional visit and we sat down with president netanyahu, one thing he asked, he was concerned about iran and the dominance and occurred and we have the iranian guard in syria. and their march toward having the nuclear device so they can have dominance. >> sean: that's all true and it's gotten worse, leslie, after the suck up to the world apology tour. and king be abdullah, jordan, says it's naive, that the muslim brotherhood are wolves in sheep's clothing, risky for him. and this president is giving 1.5 billion dollars, and f-16 jets and tanks it a guy that views the israelis as the descendents of apes and pigs. do you think that's a good foreign policy, leslie marshall? >> i don't think it's a good foreign policy to pretty much be-- is that a good policy. >> i'm answering, as to how we establish bord
for what the government promised them. let's prevent that crisis from happening. we know it's coming. this budget does that. >> some are against ryan's budget particularly those in the democrat party. it they are posing dramatically different plans for the budget. our hope is they can find compromise. the priority for both is to put americans back to work and establish strong economic growth. >> we need put americans back to, would and strong economy. a second priority one coupled with economic growth. i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> dick durbin also optimistic they can move forward. as congress grapples with developing a budget it must deal with another problem that looms it has to pass a continued resolution before march 27th to avert a government shut down. heather, they go on break at the end of this week. we will see what happens. >> of course they do. they are always going on breakdown there. >>> it is time for your first degree weather update with ma r maria molina. >> maria is in the weather center tracking anoth

. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
is defined in 41 states and the federal government as a union of a man and a woman, a husband and wife. and the case before the supreme court is asking the court to strike down those laws and redefine that, and use the force of government to force everyone to accept the new definition of government. >> if each of you has 30 seconds to make your case before the supreme court, what would it be? >> the reason is not because of my romantic life. it's because men and women produce children. children needs mothers and fathers, and marriage is the institution that united nations a man and woman as husband and wife and be mother and father. children do best when raised by their married mother and father. and that's why government's in the marriage business. all americans are free to live and to love as they choose. but no one has the right to redefine marriage for everyone. >> ryan, there is so much wrong in what you said, that children do best when they're with their married parents. >> you really don't believe that children need a mom and dad? >> not all parents are good parents. that's the
. guest: the federal government provided for electrification to rural areas because it was deemed a necessity. just like water service was built out and provided to rural areas, electricity was provided, and now communications services that serve the public interest. that is the mandate they wrote into law to guide the fcc. is it in the public interest for people in rural areas to hospital, their local government services, family members, and others? the fcc is under both republican and democratic chairman have said yes, it is. host: on twitter -- are there steps you can give about where this program is most use? and the roleline internet connections? on the fcc website, the their reports on all these programs a go into great detail about where they're provided, how much, and where. universalder the service administrative company and their required to disclose where and who gets the service. that is how they have found out through these reforms, that there were a number people getting the service who were not qualified. as withgo to fcc.ogv, oft things, and the pages material and
of the president is he seems more interested in the trappings and fun stuff than the governance, which was the job he was hired to do. he has an enormous amount of power. we pay him to do the job. you can say the project process is not sexy or exciting. >> neil: i built a career on it. >> now we're going back and forth. the fact is this is what you law says. he should abide by that. >> neil: well-spoken. thank you very much. i was kidding you about your favorite days but i'm worried. >>> fair and balanced. new york democratic congressman charly wrangle doesn't agree with a thing he said, which is okay. >> listen, only if you're fair and equal. forget the brackets. i'm here for the budget. >> he's late. it's routine policy in washington for things to be late. i guess we get used to this. but should we? >> well, let me make it clear that once the budget is passed, it has no meaning at all in the law. and so that there's no compulsion for anyone to do anything if, and i hope soon, there's agreement to the budget. a budget is really a statement of policy of the party. and hopefully in the future, we w
, give them government designed benefits guaranteed to cover people even if they seek coverage after they develop a serious illness requiring lifetime extensive treatment, mandate that the coverage that people neither need nor want have to be had including like forcing 60-year-old women to have maternity benefits and somehow all of that is supposed to cost less money. that is not medicine. that is magic and even bil bill maher is wishing he could get his money back to cover his tax load. i found out that liberals love fair share when they think someone else is going to eat it. why are successful people like bill maher punished severely with a tax rate at 60 60% when many pay nothing? most of us don't hate paying taxes, we just don't want to be played as suckers and pay half or more of our income while half of the country contributes nothing and drains the tub while collecting endless government giveaways. i don't mind helping people who don't have enough food to eat or medical expenses astronomical because of a disability insure don't mind that making sure military men and women and
government at home and abroad. >> rand paul wants to accomplish the departments of education and congress and epa. >> small detail. >> and the federal reserve and abolish the income tax. the second amendment which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic se
with stimulus money. the government built it and now the government is shutting it down. in some of these cases it's almost ludicrous that you have federal budget fights that are making these decisions and not safety, air safety or national priority for how we're going to grow our aviation in this country. >> the faa's priority is to protect the consumer, the flying public. they have airports, they created brand new control towers and requires people behind control towers to make sure that everything happens correctly and airplanes land correctly and sequenced correctly. you can have the best tsa in the world to check you for security, what good is any of that if there's not a person in the control tower to make sure that everybody who takes off and lands at an airport does so in a safe and orderly fashion. there's no safety factor involved here. >> let me tell you about a new rule from the tsa allowing knives and other dangerous items onboard. how safe is the public and flight crews in that case. you're a former air marshal. what do you think about people being able to -- so what if the blade
than what we have today. better than a big, bloated federal government and the same old one-size-fits-all bureaucracy. better education, better health care, better opportunityings. opportunities. these are, excuse me, there are americans who still need jobs, families who deserve more take-home pay, students who must have great schools. of so many of them support democrats simply because we haven't done a good enough job offering them our internship. our alternative. we haven't been in their towns, their cities, their neighborhoods. but we're going to be. the rnc can't do this alone. so i ask my fellow republicans to think about what you can do and commit to building our party together. and to anyone listening online, i want to hear from you too. i want you to join me in a twitter q&a this afternoon at 1 p.m. eastern. just tweet @reince with the hash tag "opportunity." to those who have left the party, let me say this: we want to earn your trust again. to those who have yet to join us, we welcome you with open arms. there's more, there's more that unites us than you know, and
, it can't be a crisis because the government isn't doing anything to correct it. they always know best, don't they? let's look at a two-year chart of yields and doing everything pretty much under 2% and lower than that, but here's what's interesting. open the chart up to year to date. tell you what, if you take off the ten-year on the top of the chart and show it to a technician, he's not going to be particularly bullish on this chart and it looks like yields at least for the moment technically have topped and if you look at the boon, it's an exaggerated correction off of its levels of higher yields and indeed it is leading the ways and we've seen the spread between ten-year u.s. and ten-year european boons widen to the widest level in seven, plus years. this is not investment grade and it isn't the barclays spread and this is an etf and it's very enlightening to look at it over the last couple of weeks going back to february because it's creeping up in a way that's similar to stocks. the stocks firm up and the reach for yield is firming up especially when all of that is going on with
